The latest and greatest

DSC00221.2May 24, 2010

It’s been awhile…

And, we’ve been busy!

Having a full-fledged, 17.5-month-old toddler in the house, and nice weather outside, doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for blogging, you see.  :)

But, I’ll attempt to catch you up…

Connor’s still attending weekly physical therapy sessions – things are going really well there.  He’s definitely got his cruising skills down, and has begun reciprocal creeping (essentially, crawling!).  While he still chooses to bottom scoot too often (why move from a sitting position when that’s how you want to end up anyway, right?), he doesn’t complain when we put him on his knees.  In fact, when we see him bottom scooting, all we have to do is remind him to get on his knees, and now he does!  If he starts from a laying down position, it’s knees all the way.

The most recent, BREAKING NEWS accomplishments:

  • Saturday (May 29), nearly all by himself, he crawled up the entire stairwell!  (And, he wouldn’t stop until he reached the top.)
  • Sunday (May 30), he mastered (finally) pulling himself up on the ottoman and the sofa. 

Check it out!

DSC00588.2 He’s already mastered pulling up to stand in his crib, and on occasion will pull himself up in his play yard or on his toy box.  Once on his feet, he cruises the entire perimeter of the family room, even walking along walls.  His PT thinks he’ll be walking on his own by the end of summer.  All along, my personal hope was for him to walk by the time he was 2, so we’re well on our way!

The probiotics we’ve been giving him for the past several weeks in his breakfast cereal have finally started to help him… and now everything runs like clockwork.  (Thanks, Dr. Andi!)  We’re always greeted by a major stink bomb at the end of his morning nap now… and we’re NOT COMPLAINING!  :)  Easy poops = happy baby!!

DSC00137.2Lately, Connor is obsessed with anything electronic.  He can spot them from a mile away and makes a beeline for it as soon as he’s free from our arms.  He definitely knows the difference between “toy” remotes and phones and real ones, and has lost all interest for the fake ones.  If it has buttons, he must push it.  If he sees a computer mouse or a keyboard, he must touch it.  And he won’t give up until you let him, or leave the room.

He’s at a fun stage now, where he’ll mimic you and then remember the gesture in the future.  While my mom was here in April, she taught him to pinch his nose when something was stinky.  And Connor knows that passing gas is stinky… so Daddy gets this gesture a lot.  ;)  (In his defense, if Connor hears a cough or a burp, he’ll pinch his nose then, too.)

See the video below for his latest round-up of “tricks”!

Connor received two thumbs up from his ophthalmologist in the last month, and was cleared of Early Intervention evaluations until November. Other than the ongoing physical therapy and routine baby well-checks with his pediatrician, Connor should have it fairly quiet until July, when we visit his nephrologist for another round of testing for his urinary reflux.

And now, the picture dump…
